Recently, the Center for Talented Youth opened a new research lab on its main Baltimore campus. The lab offers young students a variety of recreational options, including everything from Lego and tangram puzzles to video games with 3D headsets. In addition to offering students plenty of play opportunities, the 1,350-square-foot lab also gives cognitive scientists the ability to study how gifted children learn.
According to Amy Shelton, the director of research and a professor at Johns Hopkins, the lab is designed to help share information regarding the behavior of advanced students. Elaine Tuttle Hansen, the executive director of the Center for Talented Youth, also believes that the lab will play a crucial role in giving scientists insights on which strategies help students, both gifted and not, reach their full academic potential.
